For me, the most important message of the film is, "Use your time for the most benefit" - that is to say, try to do 'good' with your volunteer time and your working life. But try to have fun at the same time, because it will be more fun for others around you, too.

It's interesting to check in and "see where it's at" with some of these 60's folks. Looking past the nostalgia one catches a glimpse of the downside to the supposed joy and search for nirvana, the chaos the children were raised in while their parents were living the ultimate in alternative lifestyles. Good old Wavy Gravy made me a little sad.

Wavy Gravy embodies everything that was good about the 60s: sharing, openness to new ideas, tolerance, commitment to social justice and helping others. Many people will remember him from the film "Woodstock" - he and his Hog Farm colleagues figured out, on the spot, how to feed the hundreds of thousands of people who showed up there, and how to keep people safe and calm. Great portrait of the most "un-cynical" man you could meet.
